ClassGraphic Quick, painless and cheap. That’s what most of us hope for our death. But the chances are it won’t be that way unless we do some pre-planning. In his book Being Mortal (Picador, 2014), Atul Gawande describes in riveting detail, case studies of the death of a number of people and how medicine’s neglect of patients’ wishes produces unnecessary suffering. He also gives us much-needed information to make our wishes known so that we will avoid that suffering. Despite its morbid topic, this is a highly readable page-turner. The blurb on the back cover states that this book “shows that the ultimate goal is not a good death but a good life — all the way to the very end.” We will read about 65 pages per week and will all come away with many important ideas for ourselves and our families.
